This is Dorothy in her "final resting place" so to speak. After being back from the framers almost six weeks, she is finally on the dining room wall. She matches perfectly! And it's nice to go by her every morning and say hello.
Somehow, last spring I managed to tear a tendon in my foot. And continue to walk on it all summer. And ignore the pain. By the time I finally went to the doctor we were to the "aggressive" treatment stage (I know, I know. . .), so for the next few weeks I am in a walking boot, on pain meds, with instructions to stay off my feet. So, I'm going to stitch. Sounds reasonable to me. Might do my mental health some good, too!
Pulled out A Parrot, A Leopard, A Lion. Sounds like just what the doctor ordered.
I'm going to use 40 count Antique White Newcastle Linen over two threads with the called for AVAS silk (for those who know me well, you may pick up your jaw now!). I'm planning to do all of the outlining first then just have fun coloring in the lines.
Have a wonderful weekend. Happy Stitching.
